With Functional Februari around the corner, some of you might be planning on picking up Haskell. Currently for most exercises on the Haskell track Approaches are still missing, but maybe I can help out here.
For which Haskell exercises would you especially like to see Approaches?
You lured me into solving Change. A write-up will take longer to produce. This is an interesting problem: laziness actually comes into play!
Parallell Letters would be interesting, yes, but… parallelism in Haskell might be too easy, in a sense. Adding parallelism doesn’t even add a line of code. I need to think about how to go about explaining it, without going «just go read Parallel and Concurrent Programming in Haskell». Or maybe that would be fine? It’s a good book.
If there is beauty to be found in OCR, I have as yet missed it. Are there tracks with approaches for OCR? I cannot find any, but then again I do not really know how to find them.
Functional Februari seems to have resulted in a large influx on the Haskell track. I plan on quickly writing more Approaches. It would be nice if all these people could benefit from these as soon as they are finished.
Sorry for sounding impatient; I wouldn’t have posted this early if it weren’t for the upcoming weekend, and not at all if I hadn’t perceived this kind of PR as somewhat pressing (in light of FuncFeb). It seems Haskell track’s sole maintainer might be busy. Might there be a way of speeding things up?
